7:00am
site called what time do the polls close.com and has the opening times for all 50 states and washington d.c. voting is easier in some states than others, both for procedural reasons and logical reasons in states like new york and new jersey where folks are still suffering the aftermath of the superstorm sandy people are voting in the dark to voting in tents to navigating new rules. new jersey, election officials say people can email or fax in their ballot, but they also have to send in the physical paperwork as well for that vote to count. there was some discrepancy whether or not that physical paper would be necessary. it is when the system is used for military and overseas voters and that's going to have to be the same way for people who have been displaced by the storm. hopefully, everyone will still get out and give it a shot. we'll be back with more steph after the break. stay with us.

7:05am
>> a lot of propositions, both city and state. because we have the porn proposition. >> stephanie: right. what are you doing on that one? >> if it passes, then condoms will be necessary required for every porn shoot in los angeles. >> porn skill. [buzzer] >> stephanie: kids, happy election day very, very exciting. it really is a morning of too many stars. we have jake gyllenhall, sarah jessica parker, rob reiner and cecile richards from planned parenthood. good morning. >> caller: good morning, how are you? >> stephanie: you took a leave of absence from your very fancy job. >> for the women who come to planned parenthood who depend on us really, inning is more important than this presidential election. i had the honor of volunteering for president obama last month. i'm in richmond, virginia right now, getting out the vote.
7:06am
it's going to be a good day. >> stephanie: i can't even imagine. did you do a spit take when you heard mitt romney say we are going to get rid of that, planned parenthood. >> caller: i think he just doesn't get it when it comes to women and of course, now he's trying to say anything he has to to get women to vote for him. i think women know they can't trusted him and that's what i'm hearing out here in the field is women are saying look, why would we go backwards in america and president obama's been a great president for women. >> stephanie: i have to say particularly for 2012, i've never seen a clearer choice for women. i mean, it really is kind of astounding that we have a canned date that is not sure if he would have voted for equal pay can't give an answer on that. >> caller: right. >> stephanie: would get writ of planned parenthood, what else? we can go down the list. >> caller: not only the fact that he could never answer the question about whether he believes in equal pay for women that's something that we know
7:07am
costs women nearly $400,000 in a lifetime because of how much less we get paid. that's just a fundamental issue. i'm hearing from a lot of women too, who are really concerned that mitt romney keeps saying he would love to overturn roe v. wade and of course the next president will make one or two supreme court points that could do just that. >> stephanie: you know, it's interesting with all the attention that resolved around the 47% comments, i'm sure you heard the other part of that tape where he talked, i don't know if it's a different tape, but him again privately recorded saying he was proud of the fact that he signed anything antti choice he possibly could in massachusetts. >> caller: that's right. he's very, very clear. he said he would be delighted to sign a bill overturning row. he'd like to take away the rights for women. women are saying i can't imagine my daughter or my granddaughter would have fewer rights than i do. this is a constitutional right
7:08am
women have had in america for 40 years and mitt romney is saying he wants to get rid of it. >> stephanie: you know, it's almost impossible to know what he thinks about anything, because he seems to be a man completely devoid of principles, because he's obviously changed on every single subject. my fear is what you just said, that his real beliefs are much more conservative than what he's feigning. >> caller: all i've heard from the romney campaign is well, those issues don't matter. he has the right position, and in fact, i don't see him running any television ads proudly proclaiming his commitment to get rid of planned parenthood, over turn roe wouldn't back the lily led better fair pay act.
7:09am
they are hiding the ball, making sure women don't know those. he has a miserable record creating jobs in massachusetts. it seems to be the private sector experience is shipping jobs overseas. >> stephanie: that's right. we've had so many polls in this whole season, but as far as i know most of the ones i've seen, that gender gap is right where we thought it was going to be for mitt romney right? >> caller: that's right. usa today came out 16 points, as high as it's ever been. definitely women that are republican women independent women out here in these battle ground states are saying look, mitt romney, i can't trust him. he's too extreme and also, he'll say anything to get a vote, but you can't trust him once he's president. >> stephanie: you are in virginia. i know it's very, very close. what is the latest polling you're hearing out of virginia? >> caller: i think in virginia, there's two big races the senate race and presidential
7:10am
race. i think the president's going to carry virginia. i think tim cain's going to be elected to the u.s. senate, and a lot of it on these issues, on the doors knocking on doors and on phone banks today women are saying i can't believe this is a guy running for president who doesn't know where he is on equal pay, wants to get rid of birth control coverage in insurance plans and wants to get road of planned parenthood. every woman in america knows what that means. mitt romney may not know, but women do. >> stephanie: i'm reading a piece, because we're so focused on the presidential, but there's a lot going on particularly with female candidates and particularly in the senate. it looks like the odds are the democrats are going to retain the senate, right. >> caller: yes, and there are so many women running for the senate this time. we really stand to have a record number of women join the senate, so, you know, in a number of battleground states, as well.
7:11am
baldwin, it's exciting, doing really, really well in wisconsin. the list goes on. >> stephanie: it's interesting that you almost one talk about the war against women you almost can't write this stuff from todd akin to richard mourdoch. those are two seats right there. >> caller: that's right those exactly. the thing i think that is important, stephanie about, you know todd akin and richard mourdoch people act like they're somive outliars. they are representing the republican platform. that's however it's gotten. the irony is here's mitt romney running ads saying i need richard mourdoch in the united states senate. if that's who mitt romney needs in the united states senate, you can only imagine who he would put on the united states supreme court. that is, you know, it's been. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: really chilling. >> stephanie: cecile, that's the amazing thing not only how offensive their comments are all of these different republicans about rape, they
7:12am
don't get how offensive they are. that's the other layer of it. >> caller: the thing that kind of perplexes me, paul ryan in the vice presidential debate, i said this, i thought it made it crystal clear when he said look, my personal religious views are that life begins at conception and therefore basically, i believe that every woman in america should live under my religious edict. that is what they believe. they don't, first of all none of them can get pregnant, so i don't know where they come off having the opinions they do, but in any case, it's not because someone's religious views such that somehow every woman in america's going to suffer as a result is crazy. >> stephanie: if men could get pregnant cecile, there would be a planned parenthood on every block. >> caller: absolutely. i know. and maybe one day, there will be. >> stephanie: i hope so. thanks for your great work in the campaign and coming out on
7:13am

7:23am
say they're going to on day one start taking apart the affordable care act when he won't even comment on the led bedder for fair pay. when he starts taking away pell grants, this is on the first day. i don't know how long he thinks a day is, but people understand what is at risk and they understand what's possible, and so they understand that you don't grow an economy, you know, like you plant vegetables, you don't think you're going to have a salad by the weekend. everything is in place the economy is growing and it's not the fanfare and flashiness that americans get used to, but they are maturing as an electorate. people are responding to that. >> stephanie: like the president just said, everything you just said, basically, he summed it up best. we've come too far to turn back now. you can look at hard evidence, any grasp on the economy anything, that we are headed in the right direction. >> caller: this is the amazing
7:24am
thing, he did that with an openly disloyal opposition. can you imagine what we could have gotten done if they actually took their pledge to govern and to represent america and their best interests? all of that has happened with the absolute undertow. the thing that he does have on his side is the grassroots, is the american people, but we have to show up. he can't do it by himself. we have to show up and stand up and understand that even if you have $10 or if you've got $10 million, that vote weighs the same today. so that's what everybody needs to convince those people who feel like they don't matter, that yeah, it's going to go on with or without you. it's going to go on, so amitoses well jump in. >> stephanie: that's a good point. imagine what he can accomplish in this next term. i hope that that also happens in this election, that the message
7:25am
is sent that we wanted you to work with president obama to, you know, continue the progress that we've made. >> caller: yes and out of unprecedented lows, that's what's amazing people say you acted like he was the one like he was chosen. he's one of something, because what he has brought us back from the brink of was unprecedented. he may not be the one but we are the one, we are the american people standing up with him. reach across lines and not told a different story in different states. people responded to that. they responded to working together on the things that we had in common to push forward and not arguing forever on things we're never going to agree on. >> stephanie: didn't he just proof that with chris christie that he has always been willing to work across the i'll to get things done if people would meet him and work with him.

that's what just happened, right? >> caller: yes, the land is a great leveler because it is, and we can have all the arguments we want, but the land and things like climate change, you know, reaching out and when people say we don't want federal assistance in natural disasters they can have that opinion. everyone is entitled to their opinion but you can't govern a country like ours if you're not going to govern 100% of the people. alfre woodward. >> woodard! mitt romney has meat loaf on his side. >> caller: thank you so much. >> stephanie: woodard! i can say it! we'll be right back on the "stephanie miller show." coverage, with unrivaled social media, straight from the campaigns, the pundits, and from

and important voice on the supreme court. it's likely that there will be an appointment, in her place. i mean but the issues with women, you know, turn into family issues which turn into economic issues, and so yeah, this election, to think from the point of view of a woman is easy and important to do, and it was a great piece actually in the times. you probably read it, by nicholas kristoff that i think summarized it well, entitled how romney would treat women from november 3. i think if people have a second toe read it, it paints the very scary portrait of what the next four years would look like under the romney and ryan administration for the women. >> stephanie: like ruth bader gunsburg, you are tiny and robust.

8:22am
think this one is more so, because whorl really look at the two parties the differences are so stark. there is so much as stake and the extreme positions that mitt romney has adopted, his choice of a vice presidential candidate alone is really, really scary for a better part of americans and they are the americans who have given the most to us, the middle class workers the people who have been working so hard to gain that status, our veterans, senior citizens, our people that have worked incredibly hard and have played by the rules and i think this is an election about jobs and justice and i think that without obama in the white house for the next four years we will really, really feel an enormous an powerful change that i think is going to really hurt once gotten 47% that mitt romney

and here's the thing, you know, people who are on the side of broadening rights, giving more rights to people, they're always, they always win whether it's african-american rights or it's women's rights, now gay rights, which is the last leg of the civil rights race that we're running here, whenever you expand people's rights and give people equality, you tend to be on the right side, even though there are forces that are pulling you down, eventually the right thing happens. we're seeing that happen now in this country. >> stephanie: you know, e.j. dejuan said i think tomorrow, he wrote this yesterday we're going to move forward because that's what we do as people, that's what we tend to do at americans. >> it is, it is. there are a lot of forces that want to, you know, have every man for themself and have rich people, you know, be the -- i mean it goes back to --
8:35am
essentially, we're running we're still in a civil war, you know, it's a political civil war that we're still in and there are remnants of it. we've seen that racism come rising to the surface here in this last election. when you have people like john assununu saying the only reason collin paul supports obama is because he's black this is stuff that's been submerged coming to the forefront. you've got a civil war that we're still fighting and we're ultimately going to win, the right side will win this. >> charlie pierce this morning the most racially, you know, disgusting campaign he's seen is what he said. you're right, there is no difference now between the rush limbaughs and official romney surrogates. >> caller: it's very scary. they've highjacked, that tea party that highjacked the republicans. it will be interesting if obama
8:36am
wins, and i believe he will. what's going to happen in terms of, you know, comity? comedy we always have, comity. >> stephanie: comedy will be fine. >> caller: i think we have a chance of moving forward. if romney were to win it will be a disaster, because he's going to be held captive by those crazies to the right and he owes them and he'll be held captive. it will be another year of grid lock with harry reid basically filibustering everything. we want to move forward. it's enough already. we want to start, you know, solving problems, and we can because the democrats have basically become the moderate republicans. we've got a crazy right wing republican party and we basically have a middle of the road party, which is the democrats. we're not liberals anymore. there is no more liberals. all the policies are very, very middle of the road.
8:37am
>> stephanie: yep and yet if romney loses tomorrow, the rush limbaughs are going to say it's because we went too moderate again and we'll say yes go farther right. >> caller: there's no question. elf definitely say that. >> stephanie: you're not far right enough, that's the problem. it's interesting the mole campaign slogan forward but it really is backward. it's the bush tax cuts even worse, it's back to that foreign policy backwards like you say on equal pay for women equal rights marriage equality. really on every single issue right? >> caller: it is, it is. and, you know, people are, you know, i think and a lot of people are not sophisticated enough to understand that it does take a long time to dig yourself out of the worst economy sips the depression. most economists will say that when you're in as bad an economic situation as we were in, it takes about 10 years to
8:38am
dig out. we're well on our way. in the next four years you're going to see unemployment rate go down, every indicator housing starts are up. >> stephanie: construction. >> caller: unemployment is down, job creation is up, every single indicator shows we're moving in the right direction. i think for most people, you know, they don't feel it in some cases, they don't feel it and it's not moving fast enough for them, but, you know, these things don't move fast. >> stephanie: yep. rob reiner, have i mentioned to you that i enjoy the movie american president. >> caller: no, you never said that to me. i feel that as a friend of yours, maybe you should once in a while compliment me. >> stephanie: really? i feel we're at one of those moments. >> people want leadership, mr. president. they'll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. they want leadership. they're so thirsty for it, they'll crawl through the desert for it or drink the sand. >> people don't drink the sand
8:39am
because they're thirsty. they drink it because they don't know the difference. >> rob reiner storming the castle. >> caller: let's put everything in it. it's close to 11:00. >> stephanie: have we mentioned that mitt romney is a. >> liar! liar! liar! [ laughter ] >> stephanie: i think the president is also a fan of american president don't you? because he literally said i am president. he did that once. >> caller: i don't know if he's a fan or not but it definitely seeped to the culture so maybe he picked up on it. >> stephanie: i think it's because my relentless clubbing of people. he's given up. >> caller: you're my number one fan. >> stephanie: i am! [ laughter ] >> i just watched that the other day. >> caller: break his ankles with a sledgehammer. >> stephanie: we just made up a rob reiner move re.
